Özet

In this study, three fatigue crack growth life estimation methodologies are reviewed and sample calculations are made using these methodologies. Comparison of the results with respect to the methodologies are made. Three computer codes which represent these methodologies, CRACKS IV, FASTRAN and FATIGUE are selected for the analyses. The estimations are also correlated to the test results found in the literature. FALSTAFF spectra are used in the analyses.
